Money, That's What I Want

If you’ve been in the workforce long enough, you have probably been asked – formerly or informally – about your reasons for wanting to work in a certain industry or at a particular company.

Ask a former Wall Street rockstar if it was worth it.

Guess What Happened To Me Today?

Think back to the last ten business conversations you’ve had. Now count up how much time was spent by anyone on work environment, coworkers in a negative light or lack of respect in the workplace verses real actual business chat.

What Will Make Us Happy

Or a co-creative environment of encouragement, strong internal customer service and personal/professional growth where your strengths and abilities are valued?

Nah, dumb idea, let's go with the widgets.
